We recently travelled to Kinston for a funeral. The hotel staff were extremely nice, the hotel was so clean, and the food delicious! We travel quite a bit in Florida and stay in different hotel frequently. This one is one of the nicest we stayed in and for a great rate!

My one of two complaints is that the parking lot is difficult to find from the main road, especially at night. We passed the hotel 3 times with it in view, but could not find the way to the parking lot. Luckily, I went down what we thought was a dirt road and got there safely. I suggest reflective markers...

Along a busy commercial strip. Many restaurants and stores (Walmart, etc.) nearby. About 8 minute drive into downtown Kinston which is where we were eating dinner. Golden Corral and a movie theater share a parking lot. Room was clean. Friendly desk staff but again, all is pretty basic. Choose this hotel based on price/location - not amenities or service.

The stay was your typical stay in a nice Hotel chain but what set these guys off from all the rest was the fact that they honored my AAA card which saved me $15.00 and their breakfast was full and complete.

Overall average not as nice as some of the rest of the Holiday Inn Express I have visited in the past. A bit pricey because of that. Room was clean, bedding was good. Shower was good like the fact that it was able to be handheld.

In general, not quite as posh as some Holiday Inns I've stayed in, but no major problems either. Clean, comfortable bed, quiet at night. Perks are the movie theatre to one side and the Golden Corral to the other side and conveniently located to other restaurants and shopping needs as well. Wi-fi was a little dodgy, but usable. Staff are...

This is your standard Holiday Inn Express. No surprises. Nice room, good bed, lots of variety on the breakfast fare. Our only complaint is that somebody had turned the TV to Pat Robertson's show and nobody could find the remote. Not the voice I want to hear first thing in the morning. Also, the hallway on our floor was not...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Kinston, the ideal hotel for business or leisure. Also welcome to historic Kinston, North Carolina home of the Kinston Indians Baseball team that plays at Grainger Stadium. We are located just off US 70 midway between Raleigh and the Carolina Coast. Originally established as a tobacco inspection center in 1759 along the banks of the Neuse River, the city was first known as Kingston (named for King George III of England). In 1784 following the revolutionary war the people of Kingston requested the letter G be dropped. In 1826 Kinston was incorporated. Come see the many historical sights Kinston has to offer such as the C.S.S. Neuse State Historic Site and the Caswell Center No.1 Fire Station Museum. If you are traveling here on business, there are plenty of companies in the area including Electrolulx, Smithfield Foods, and West Pharmaceuticals. While staying with us our rooms are equipped with a work desk and free high-speed Internet. We also offer spacious king suites which include whirlpool tubs. In the evening come down to the lobby and indulge yourself with some of our fresh baked Otis Spunkmeyer cookies as well as fresh fruit. Our hotel will do its best to meet your every need to make your stay as perfect as possible. Visit Kinston and Stay Smart at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites. ... more   less
